This post was inspired by a Goodful video that was shared with me by a friend.
I decided to recreate the lemon poppy seed loaf that they made but with a couple modifications.
While walking through the aisle of the grocery store the other day,
I stumbled upon these famous pogo sticks that were so popular in my childhood years.
Had I not developed celiac, I would probably still be eating them now because I loved them so much. After seeing them, I decided that this would be the first recipe I would put together for Celiac Awareness Month. Perfect and in time for the first Friday of the month. Yay for Friday! 🙂
Anyways, if you’re interested in seeing how I created a gluten free, dairy free, corn free, and egg free version, the recipe is below!
Maamoul are a traditional Lebanese dessert that’s especially popular around Easter time. They are a Lebanese pastry that come in several fillings ranging from dates, pistachios, to walnuts and more. My personal favorites are the date filled ones. My mom used to always bake dozens upon dozens of batches but after I got diagnosed with celiac, it got a little harder and took me some time to figure out a recipe that I liked. This year, I finally whipped something up that I thought would be worthy of sharing with the rest of y’all and it’s actually quite easy. They taste just about the same as the originals and can definitely satisfy your sweet tooth without the added sugar.
